Fast Company comes through with yet another interesting graphic, illustrating just how much bang, or lack thereof, you're getting for your buck. With seemingly more and more air pumped into the foil containers, the study shows just which bags are actually worth spending a pretty penny on. The study also debunks the rumor that more air is needed in order to minimize chip crushage and asserts the unreasonable amount of air is nothing more than corporate brainwashing.

Here's the order of space-wasting culprits from worst to best:

1. Cape Cod chips (87% air) 2. Doritos (86% air) 3. Lay's (86% air) 4. Pringles (66% air) 5. Fritos (64% air) 6. Wise popcorn (59% air) 7. Bugles (57% air) 8. Chex Mix (56% air)

The info originally appeared in a video uploaded by YouTube user Henry Hargreaves, the same man that turned soda into lollipops, which you can watch below:
